Of all the excitement to be had on Easter Sunday, few moments are as special to a child as exploring their Easter basket. Filled with chocolates, candies, dyed eggs and other edible treats, the real interest is in the discovery of a special Easter toy. These toys usually have an Easter theme, such as springtime or the Easter Bunny, and take the shape of familiar favorites, such as twirling tops, coloring books, or whistles.
Often small and simple (so they can be played with immediately) an Easter toy is a special treat to a young girl or boy and is often eagerly anticipated when digging through their baskets. Parents often appreciate the peace and relative quiet these simple toys of yesteryear can bring, keeping children occupied nicely!
